WASHINGTON (AP) - A federal judge says a White House office that
has records about millions of possibly missing e-mails does not
have to make them public.
U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly says the Office of
Administration is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act,
enabling the White House to maintain the secrecy of a lengthy
internal paper trail about its problem-plagued e-mail system.
The ruling came in a lawsuit filed against the administration by
Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a private
group that has been trying to find out the extent of the White
House's e-mail problems for more than a year.
